Teaching & Support Staff
My name is Mrs James. As a child I wanted to be a teacher but circumstances didn’t allow and I drifted into banking and accounting. Having moved into the area four years ago I suddenly found myself with a lot of time on my hands and decided to offer myself as a volunteer at Forsbrook Primary School. I enjoyed my time at school so much that I decided to take the qualification to become a teaching assistant. I love my job more than anything I have ever done in my working life. I believe that this is down to the ethos of the school, its caring staff and of course, the wonderful children.
Outside of school I love to walk my dog and look after my chickens. I also enjoy gardening and have recently started growing vegetables and herbs. My hobbies include cooking, DIY and baking for my family and friends. My biggest passion is travel, and we have visited many places including America, Australia, Asia and the Caribbean, my favourite destination being the Greek Islands. However, I am more than happy to holiday in Britain, particulaly Yorkshire and we have recently discovered the beautiful county of Northumberland.
